NAfME recognizes that COVID-19 is a topic of great concern for our members – those in the classroom and those managing State MEAs. We have created a resource and news page with World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance as well as information related to music instrument hygiene, plus online professional development and virtual teaching resources. This page will be updated as we receive new information pertinent to our members’ needs.
